How Does Ransomware Fool Top Antivirus Products?

Presented by

Nir Gaist, Founder and CTO of Nyotron

About this talk

Ransomware, ransomware, ransomware. Why are our current endpoint defenses so inefficient? We will take three leading endpoint security (antivirus) products and demonstrate live how ransomware developers use trivial techniques to bypass all of them. Often a single line of code is all that’s needed to render antivirus ineffective and all data lost. NOTE: This webinar is applicable to technical audience only. We will be digging right in the source code and compiling ransomware on the fly. Presenter: Nir Gaist, founder & CTO of Nyotron, is a recognized security expert and ethical hacker. Nir has worked with and pentested some of the largest Israeli organizations, such as banks, police and the parliament. He also wrote the cybersecurity curriculum for the Israel Ministry of Education.
